It’s been a little while in between releases for The Hunting Birds following the 2018 release of their debut EP ‘In Its Nature’. But now the Melbourne three piece are back with a refreshing new track to unveil.
‘Catch Up’ is a indie folk-pop moment that embodies this euphoric release of smooth harmonies and country-folk influenced melodies that deserve to be unravelled in a music festival setting.
But at it’s core this song explores a deeper understanding of connection as they reflect on feeling out of sync with someone in a relationship that should be building momentum as they discover more about each other and come to have that untouchable trust. Craving that feeling they learn to work on it and accept that sometimes you can fall out of touch with each others feelings and it’s all about being self aware.
“Why are we always playing catch up, always on the make up like we are always on the chase” Connor Minervini and Kendra Fewster harmoniously sing during the hook.
Beginning the song with a soft guitar riff and their angelic harmonies gracing over the top, the song starts to build layers as drums and extra guitars help bring this song to life.
This is a very strong return for The Hunting Birds and is a song that you will want to experience live as soon as it’s safe to do so.
